LAST MAN'S BROTHERHOOD Solr Survivor of Tlilrly-I tru Ilrnnk n Tot-Hi lij lllltt.elr. Standing alone at the table In tin dining room of his home In Philadel phia ns the bell In Independence hall htruck 12 the other night. Walter W. Hell drunk to the memory of thirty-two comrades of the Last Man's brother hood, of which Mr. Hell Is the lone sur vivor, says the Now York Herald. The association was formed by thirty-three men connected with morning newspapers nt n dinner on Feb. 10, I MO, In Harney 1-iclcK old restaurant nt the northeast corner of Ninth nnd Arch streets. It was then n greed that then; should he a yearly banquet. All the meuibeis were men who delighted In good fellowship, who could tell hu morons stories nnd sing tho old songs effectively nt the festive board. More than one had appeared on the stage. At tho first dinner n bottle of Ma deira wine was corked tip, placed In a basket, labeled and kept "for the last man." Its seal was not broken until the other night. Mr. Hell, who for a quarter of n century was tho foreman of tho composing room of the Philadel phia Inquirer, Is sixty eight years old, well preserved, In excellent health and tho head of n real cktnto olllce. .Strangely enough, at the tlrst dinner Mr. Hell proposed a toast to "the last man" nnd recited a few lines descrip tive of the last day of the club. There wns pathos In tho answer to the toa made by Robert Dyball In n poem of his own In the following year entitled "The f; press Crown." Then the au thor made hold to bid for the honor of being tho hist man. Mr. Dybnll's bid was n strong one. but ho was twenty four years older than Mr. Hell and dropped out of the race eleven years ago when nearly fourscore years of ngc. Ills nnswer to the toast given by Mr. Hell concludes: nut chill Is his henrt, and his limbs rcarce hear His weight ns tic rise before, his chair. Yet lie calls tho name In order due. The snd, snd list, nearly through. He rnlst-H the Kins to his shriveled Up And essays the Kencrotis draft to sip; Then, sinking down.- with palsied hand Hu iiiukps the last note of our wasted hnnd. Tho diito, his name, his senses drown; "Mine, mine, nlas, Is the cypress crown." During the first four years of tho ex istence of the brotherhood Its ranks remained unbroken. No member was absent from Its dinners. In 1S01 threu died. The wnr'cnuie. and of ten mem bers who went out nine returned. One was killed before Petersburg. Twenty two men sat down a decade later In the hotel nt Ninth nnd Halubridge streets kept by n woman who after ward became "Squire" MeMullln's wife. They toasted the memory of eleven lost chums. Year after year the feast went on. Sometimes there would be no new nhsenteew, Munullmes several, until In 1S01 there were only three diners Mr. Hell. Robert Dyball nnd William Eckert. In the following year Hell and KekcTt VVeTC' mourners at Dybnll's grave. One year ago the two pledged to gether th.e memories of the thirty-one. On Nov. 1-1, last year, Mr. Eckert died. CURIOUS EARRINGS WORN. Prriik In .Icm-lry Are II room In,; 1'opulnr In London. Earrings nre most decidedly fashion able again, says the London Mnll, nnd the more so that It Is the classes rather than the masses that are making the Idea smart. Pour shaped pearls, head ed by a cluster or a single diamond, me among tho most exquisite patterns. There are oddities, too, In the way of earrings. One Is a piece of pearl the size and exactly the shape of the thumb nail, which is worn clnsped over the lobe of tho ear, giving to that feature an appearance that Is very sin gular at tlrst sight. Many women put on earrings of odd nnd unlquo designs simply, It would seem, to attract at tention to their pretty ears or ' . love ly curve of their throats. .V ..ngulnr pair Is composed of one pink nnd one black pearl, both most beautiful 'speci mens of the gem that Is more fashion able than any other nt tho present time. Here Is the latest Idea In engagement presents lrom n newly betrothed girl to her llunce. It Is simply a golden key, which tho young man Is supposed to wear on his watch chain In memory of the tlay on which ho first wns per mitted to stand on the threshold of his ladylove's regard. The notion Is quite n pretty one and ns n gago d'auiour Fhould llnd votaries. A very clever girl Invented it for herself. Her fad from childhood had been key collect Ing. A .u Kind nf Sclnori. A decided novelty In the shears nnd scissors Hue that will especially recom mend Itself to women has. Just been perfected by n western concern. The invention consists of a spring connect ing the blades nf the scissors, hut which prevents them from loosonlug, or falling apart while In use, says the Chicago Itecord-Herald. The spring keeps the tension of the blades steady nnd continuous, nnd Its action has the further effect of producing nn edge that always remnlus ns sharp as a razor. Another peculiarity of tho, de vice is that the scissors can be used with either hand nnd that It will cut the strongest or the flimsiest material, ns the cloth cannot slip from the grasp of tho keen blades. I.nricr.t Vnt In the World. The largest oak wlno vnt in the world is being erected in n San Fran cisco cellar, says tho Chicago Itecord Herald.

Tho famous Heidelberg tuu has a capacity of r0,000 gallons, while the Golden Gate City one will bold BO, KKI gallons. MAKING BONELESS HAMS. - llonsckrrpvrs Mnv Do It nn Well am m, I'rof fi.lonnl Ilutclier. Little though one may think, the process ot making a boneless ham Is quite n fine nrt and one that requires no small degree of skill In the under taking. In fact, It Is not every one who can "bone" n ham successfully. In the event n housekeeper unfamiliar with the art of removing the bone from bams were to undertake the Job the would be almost certain to begin operations by first of all splitting the ham open and endeavoring to carve out the bone by cutting around It. The re sult would be failure nnd vexation of the worst sort, to say nothing of a ruin ed ham. The proper way to remove the bone would never suggest Itself to the average housekeeper. The operator stands the bnm on end against n supporting block mid pro ceeds to carve around the bone from one end ns deep as It is possible for him .to run his hand and knife down Into the flesh and around the bone. Having reached the extreme limit (as far, In fact, as It Is possible to extend the knife), he reverses the ham and begins cutting nroitnd the bone from the other end, cutting downward until he reaches the point that he attained In cutting from tho end on which he began, the entire operation being sci entifically correct and on tho principle of skinning nn nulmnl. The bone then slips out clear and smooth, free from any adhering llesh. As soon as this Is done stout twine Is wrapped around the bnni nnd drawn taut, completely closing tho aperture left by the removal of the bone. The twine Is thus mnde fast and the hnm laid away for u day or two, at tho end of which time Hie hole has closed so neatly that, In slicing the ham, It Is dllllcult to determine the exact spot from which the bone wns removed. This Is the proper mode of making boneless lwun, nnd with a little prac tice any housekeeper can lenrn to do the work as well as n professional butcher. They .will observe that first of nil the bone Is surrounded by n tis sue, and by starting the operation from the ends they will be surprised with what facility this tissue, dividing the bone from the tlosb, peels loose from the former.
